How were your illustrations used? :
Book inside or spot illustration/s, College or university project

How did you make this work:
These illustrations are from a picturebook I completed as part of my Masters course, using printmaking techniques. I worked on the offset monoprint press and combined these prints with pencil details, before digitally collaging them together. I wanted to show imagination and a magical world while conveying themes of friendship and overcoming fears.
